Hello from Ontario
« on: September 19, 2013, 02:10:03 pm »
Just paid for my 2013 C14 an hour ago, waiting delivery at work so I can ride it home...  Haven't "owned" a bike in years, though my friends have been kind enough to let me ride theirs often enough that I'm not too rusty...

Owned various makes/models, but Kawasakis have always been a favourite - I owned three Kawi Triples - the 400, 500 and 750, and had a Lawson replica KZ1000 when they were out.  I'm enough older now that I think a C14 is more than enough bike to scratch the "speed itch" while being a good tourer as well...

Been lurking here for a few months, joined with forum membership a couple weeks back, and upgraded to COG member just now.

Looking forward to maybe riding with other COGgers...

Hey Jamie, welcome to the COG forum.
I just went through Bellville a few weeks ago on my way home from "Triples in Tweed".
An annual event where a bunch of crazy Kaw Triple folks meet to ride and have some pops...  ;D
Do you know any other triple owners in your area? There are a few.

Congrats on the new Connie, I love my 08 C14, its the best bike I ever owned.

Sold my last triple (the H2) about 20 years ago...  Wish I still had it - loved that bike more than any I've had since..., except for the C14 I hope... Time will tell.

Went to TIT a few years back, but didn't really know anyone there...   Lots of nice bikes and blue smoke (2stroker) everywhere...
